ALung is commercializing the Hemolung Respiratory Assist System (RAS)

ALung Technologies is a leading developer of advanced medical devices for treating respiratory failure. ALung’s Hemolung Respiratory Assist System (RAS) is a dialysis-like alternative or supplement to mechanical ventilation originally developed at the University of Pittsburgh. The Hemolung RAS removes carbon dioxide and delivers oxygen directly to the blood, allowing the patient’s lungs to rest and heal. A simple extracorporeal circuit, small venous catheter, and techniques similar to hemodialysis make the Hemolung RAS easy to use.
